Life is About Moments


I’ve been pretty busy this week, churning out several projects; three of which I want to share today (the rest are future dated DT commitments, so you’ll have to wait for those!)

First up, is the November challenge at More Than Words – here is the direct link.  And here is the image inspiration:

The theme for this month is Outdoors and Woodgrain.  I was pretty excited (and immediately inspired) when this popped up, as I am a sucker for wood.  Honestly, I love the stuff and even have a stash of driftwood sitting in a bowl in my home!

I drew inspiration not only from the beautiful woodgrain image supplied by MTW, but also by the whole nature aspect of it; which is what I incorporated into my piece with both embellishments and paper designs / patterns.  My boyfriend brought me some super thin strips of wood laminate he’d used on some furniture he made; and I decided to incorporate some of it in my layout as well.  The photograph I used is of Isabella and I – outdoors – on a lovely chilly day.  I took colours from my photo and also used their earthiness in my piece as well; and I also used a touch of teal, per the inspiration image on the MTW site.

Here’s what I put together:






Thanks for stopping by!
